Colder Air Moves In On Gusty Winds Wednesday, First Flurries of the Season For the Highlands

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA – A taste of cold weather is on the way to the Heart of Virginia as early as Wednesday.

A cold front will move through during the day, with a few showers possible.

More impressive will be breezes out of the northwest at 20 to 30 mph, especially Wednesday in the mountains.

Area-wide, high temperatures will struggle to reach the lower 50s by Thursday. Overnight lows by Friday and Saturday will fall to 32 or below as the heart of the cold air settles in.

In neighboring West Virginia and the ridges of the Alleghany Highlands, the season's first snow flurries and snow showers are possible.

With a northwesterly flow, however, any moisture will have a hard time making it into the immediate Roanoke and Lynchburg areas Wednesday and Thursday.

Any flurries will be confined to the highest elevations near Hot Springs and Snowshoe, WV.

"If you live in Central Virginia, and are looking for snow, you will be disappointed. Wednesday is certainly blustery and much colder, however," said ABC 13 Chief Meteorologist Sean Sublette Tuesday.

While any snowflakes will remain north and west of our area, the colder temperatures combined with gusty winds will certainly make many of us pull out the winter clothes by the end of the week.
